I love those 12 oz aluminum bottles from Pittsburgh Brewing. This came from one of those with a picture of Jerome Bettis on it. Evidently sales benefit one of his charities. Perfect for Super Bowl week.
This is about as pale as I've ever seen a "beer". Pours out a straw shade of clear. Very aggresive pour yields a small head that lasts all of about 10 seconds.
Smells...like someone may have spilled a macro in your booth at the pizza parlor months ago. Yes, it really is that faint.
Doesn't taste like much, so I guess there's nothing to object to here. It reminds me a little of Calistoga carbonated spring water with the added minerals. Very, very, very faint thin grains. Maybe a slight hint of metallic. That's it.
Mouthfeel and drinkabilty are not distinguishable from seltzer water, so I guess it's highly drinkable.
At least it doesn't taste bad. Plus it supports a small regional brewery and "The Bus Stops Here Foundation". Football fans (esp Steeler fans) should get a kick out of this as opposed to BMC, etc. I'd take this over Bud Light 10 times out of 10.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
A:Clear golden color with a white head that went away quickly and left minimal lacing.
S: Corn is the dominate scent.
T: Mostly cereal in the taste with some malt upfront.
M: Great mouth feel, high carbonation and easy to drink.
O: This is a really good light lager. It was 93 cents for a 12oz bottle. If I could find this in a case locally it would probably be my go to cheap beer.
